How common is intersex?
Some think the incidence of intersex traits is far higher than once thought. Dr. Carie Gabriel Costello offers a compelling argument that reveals the incidence of people born with intersex traits to be greater than one in every 150 births. He states:
“A true, conservative estimate is that more than 1 in 150 people are born with intersex bodies. In this post, I’m going to explain why the true commonplace of intersexuality is so widely underestimated. And yes, I’ll justify my 1 in 150 estimate by the end.”
